“In every walk with nature,
one receives far more than he seeks”.
John Muir

Sonji Lee
Sonji’s process for creating encaustic mixed media art begins with exploration. These journeys begin with the routine practice of walking around on and near her farm. She tries to walk as often as possible, in woods and fields, along streams, and over dirt roads, delighting in the opportunities these provide, while paying particular attention to her natural surroundings. These daily excursions are meditative, providing time for reflecting and infusing peace within.

Sonji capitalizes on her wanderings to gather unique, beautiful, and special items that she incorporates into her art. She collects flowers, plant life, wood, bones, old fence wire, rusted metal, and stones - basically anything that catches her eye as part of the incredible natural environment that she happily calls home. Once back to her studio, she gently stores the objects for possible future use in her encaustic mixed media work.

Check out Sonji’s studio at her website www.thefarmatjohnsonpond.com, on Facebook or send an email at sonji@thefarmatjohnsonpond.com, phone at 570-278-5088 to schedule a visit to her studio.

“Creativity is not the finding of a thing,
but the making something out of it after it is found.”
James Russell Lowell
